Congressman Poe Reaction to President Obama's Jobs Speech

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

The President's philosophy seems to be "If it fails once, do it again." The 14 million unemployed Americans can't afford the same failed stimulus experiment. Vague promises, massive government spending and increasing the burden on businesses did not grow the economy the first time, it made it worse. The White House has already proven once before that it can't spend or tax its way into prosperity. Raising taxes on American job creators to pay the Obama plan's $450 billion price tag will guarantee failure. It's time for Washington to get out of the way so the private sector can get America working again. And that's just the way it is.
